north. it is a gradual warming trend though. a blanket of clouds tonight into the 40s and 50s and tomorrow very stiff sea breeze out of the west 10 to 20 miles an hour. 54 in pacifica. to 75 degrees. outside number at the delta, fairfield, vacaville. warmest weather next time this week. that's when summer finally arrives. and we will be right back after this.

well, the pros do and they pay for that advice. >> i think on the tour 12 to 1500 for the week. >> the pro at the half moon bay golf links says the caddies on tour get a weekly salary which pretty much covers their travel and lodging expenses. the really big money comes rolling in when the pro makes the cut. that's called the 5/7/10 rule. >> then his caddie will get 5% of whatever he makes that week if he makes the cut. if the player happens to finish in the top 10 then the caddie gets 7% of that. then for a win the caddie will share 10%. >> do the math. caddies share from a purse of 1.5 million would be $150,000. that's not bad for four days' work. but lowe says it is work. >> as far as getting the right yardage and rating greens and that kind of stuff. but for players out there week- to-week you want somebody to do a lot of that work because it
